Cherry blossoms viewing at Senbonzakura

I went to one of the well known Cherry blossoms viewing points in Kanagawa prefecture Yamato city called “Senbonzakura”it literary means thousand cherry blossoms trees ( although there aren't that many trees, we often use the word “thousand” whenever we find a large number of them.)

I often wonder what is the definition of sketches, and what differenciate it from painting. But as far as I follow USk's manifest that says : “Draw on location, capture what we see from direct observation, be truthful to the scenes we witness, share our drawings online”, I think these can be called sketches.

When I arrived this location, it was sunny and the light was ideal, I saw many people enjoy walking, taking photos, having lunch on the ground.

Then when I started making second sketch, the sky was already getting cloudy and eventually it started raining.

Sketch experiments

News from a Japanese Neighbourhood  Association community center where I am living. 

Today I did a sketch on a cardboard. Then Decided to put some paper with glue stick. Application!
And added details by crayon pencils and gel pen.
I was happy with result.

Calendar for 2017, which I bring from University library. 
Book shelf, which we received from local person. 
Now we will collect books and toys on this shelf for common use.
Took me around 30 mins to do this by mixed technic. 

I was also trying to draw by ink brush.
It is fast, compare to my usual pencil and watercolor only.
Here is latest sketches of visitors of Iwase Neighbourhood Association and meetings of it's managers.
